Re: [screen-devel] [PULL REQUEST] "search" command, searches window tit

As I read your patch, I figure that it lets you search for a given
window that has a certain pattern in the title.. is this right?

Anyways, I'm not up on screen's source code, so how do you use this
patch? C-a :search?

If so, i'd differentiate it a bit, something like 'tsearch'.. There
are a lot of search commands that it would be great to see, above and
beyond the '/' and '?' command that is already in screen:

    1. single search via perl regular expressions (or pcre) in one window
    2. multi-window search (whether using pcre or not)

First is obvious, I think the second would be a agglomeration of
search - ie: the pattern would be searched in the current buffer, and
then cycle through the next buffer, then the next, etc. switching the
current window to the screen that finds the pattern.

Anyways, it's been a while since I've followed screen; are the above
features in a wanted or todo list?
